Rosacea Body Mineral
We are frequently asked about the sulfur content in Rosacea-Ltd IV and whether or not it’s safe for people with allergies to sulfa. The two are so very different. Sulfur is used only on the skin as it is a natural base mineral required in the body system, whereas sulfa is a synthetic material produced on an assembly line for the treatment of bacteria. As the oral sulfa antibiotic pill is swallowed, the effects are systemic or throughout the body, whereas the sulfur of less than 1% in the tan Rosacea-Ltd IV disk and less than 2% in the yellow Rosacea-Ltd IV disk is applied topically. The result is that an allergy to sulfa does not mean one is allergic to sulfur.
Sulfur is a naturally occurring mineral in the earth as all base minerals in the body as you will see in the table below. In fact it’s the eighth most abundant mineral in the human body. Sulfa is a complex molecule which does ‘not’ include sulfur. The allergy to the synthetically produced sulfa is caused by proteins formed by sulfa when ingested. Sulfur is completely safe for people with allergies to sulfa.
